Hair salon aiming to be the cream of the crop at regional awards

An East Durham hair salon is aiming for further success after being nominated for two honours at the North East’s leading industry awards.

Guappo, based in Shotton Colliery, is in the running to win the 5 Star Salon Award, while owner Philip Unsworth is up for Stylist of the Year, at the North East Beauty Industry Awards 2018.

The awards recognise the best talent from the region’s hair and beauty industry, and will be held at the Gosforth Marriott hotel in September.

It comes just months after the Guappo team was recognised at the English Hair and Beauty Awards Chapter 2, where they were nominated in the ‘Salon of the Year’ category.

Philip said: “It’s fantastic for the team to once again be recognised, this time at the regional industry awards. It really is testament to everyone’s hard work and efforts that we continue to be nominated at such prestigious awards. Whether we win or not, it’s been a fantastic year for Guappo.”
